"The 1999 Sociando-Mallet is an unusually structured, extracted wine in this generally rather forward vintage. Offering up aromas of cassis, cherries and loamy soil, framed by a discreet patina from its élevage in barrel, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and nicely concentrated, with ripe acids and rich tannins that still assert themselves on the finish. This is one 1999 that still amply benefits from an hour in a decanter before drinking, but age is being kind to it." - William Kelley

"Medium ruby. Roasted black fruits and exotic oak spices on the nose. Fat, full and sweet; lush and mouthfilling but manages to retain a certain elegance. Finishes with fine tannins and excellent length for the year." - Stephen Tanzer

"Very aromatic, with blackberry, blueberry and mint. Medium-bodied, featuring fine tannins and a caressing finish with a refined texture. Just right.—'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now."
